Think more deeply about the world around you.
Through a broad and deep range of course offerings, the Science Department seeks to kindle a passion for the study of science and to address the needs and interests of all students. Laboratory experiments, hands-on activities, and computer simulations challenge them to problem solve, analyze, discover, and understand the fundamental principles of nature. This understanding empowers students to contribute to an increasingly technological society while gaining confidence in their own abilities.
We offer core courses in biology, chemistry, and physics along with many other enriching courses beyond those subjects, including Forensic Science, Astronomy, Comparative Anatomy, and Ecology.
Our Advanced Biology courses — Cell Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Genetics — along with other advanced and college-level courses, such as Organic Chemistry I and II and Astrophysics, are signature features of our curriculum.
Guided Research Projects enable interested students to conduct highly focused scientific investigations in a college research-like setting.
